    Main Card:

    Cub Swanson vs. Jeremy Stephens
    Kelvin Gastelum vs. Nicholas Musoke
    Myles Jury vs. Abel Trujillo
    Ricardo Lamas vs. Hacran Dias
    Clint Hester vs. Antonio Braga Neto
    Rani Yayha vs. Johnny Bedford

    FS1 Prelims:

    Andrew Craig vs. Cezar Ferreira
    Joe Ellenberger vs. Frank Trevino
    Sean Spencer vs. Luiz Dutra
    Colton Smith vs. Carlos Diego Ferreira

    Fight Pass Prelims:

    Anthony Hamilton vs. Oleksiy Oliynyk
    Andy Enz vs. Marcelo Guimares
    Ryan Benoit vs. Ray Borg

    With 13 fights announced, I believe the San Antonio Fight Night card is now complete. The order hasn't been announced but I believe it will be something along these lines. What do you guys think? Some fun fights. I like the overall main card, but the prelims could've used a few better fights. I'll definitely be watching though. I mean, it's free and free MMA is always a good thing.

    at this point in time, I'm done complaining about fight night cards. They are what they are in this day and age of 500 UFC cards a year.

    I don't understand how people complain about star power on cards, don't they realize that stars have to be built somehow? Fight Night cards are the best way to do that.

    Nothing special but it's the norm with fight night cards these days. Some good fights though and it's free so i'll watch.

    Lot of important prospects/top 10 bubble matches. I think Cub deserves a little better than a LW dropout like Stephens, but the Heathen has been a good run at FW and it'll be a great fight. I'll watch it, but it's definitely one of those cards I can see a casual looking at and not recognizing anyone.

    Saying you're not complaining, while complaining. I see you homie.

    Anyways solid fight night, these cards always seem to deliver.

    They do. People shat on the Brown/Silva card and it was awesome. I could care less about "star power" as long as the matchups are compelling.

    It's on my birthday and the main event is my two favorite FW's after Aldo so that's pretty cool. I'm so torn!!

    Good card though tbh

    Yeah I could see it being like Cerrone/Stephens, where Jeremy just can't catch him. Stephens was my favorite LW for a looooong time though so I can't/won't just write him right off. He has looked pretty good so far at FW and Cub hasn't fought for a year+ and just had surgery. Cub should be the obvious favorite

    This looks like a good card. Why are people complaining. I mean the cards are ufc 100 quality but they are still good even if they aren't as stacked

    aside from gastelum getting a high risk/low reward unknown opponent, this is a pretty stacked card for a fight night.
